MySQL Benchmarking 4: Compiling Super-Smack on Solaris 10

I hate to start the blog post with the same "I've been really busy excuse" but honestly that's the truth. Ever since I wrote the last post, one important thing happened to me. My dentist prescribed me a mouth wash and it turned out that I was severely allergic to it. My upper lip became extremely swollen and remained like that for couple of days until I got a shot of steroid. Ughh, it was really painful. Anyways, time has just been flying by and I have a lot of catching up to do.

This is the part 4 of MySQL Benchmarking series. In the last post I showed you how you can compile Sysbench on Solaris 10. In this post, I will be showing you how you can compile Super-Smack on Solaris 10.

MySQL Super Smack was originally developed by Sasha Pachev (sasha at surveypro dot com), a former MySQL employee. After Sasha, Jeremy Zawodny of Yahoo! took over the maintenance of Super Smack. When Jeremey got really busy with Yahoo! stuff, Tony Bourke took over the Super Smack project.

Getting Super Smack to compile on Solaris 10 was really a headache even though a Sun blog post claimed it wasn't. Nonetheless, I finally succeeded with the help of Andy.

Download Super Smack source (the current version is 1.3).
wget http://vegan.net/tony/supersmack/super-smack-1.3.tar.gz


Navigate to the directory and then uncompress and extract the software
gunzip super-smack-1.3.tar.gz

tar -xf super-smack-1.3.tar


Now set your environment as follows.
LDFLAGS=-lsocket -lnsl -lm
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mysql/lib:/usr/ccs/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/lib:/usr/ucblib
PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/opt/SUNWspro/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:.:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin
CXX=/usr/local/bin/g++
CFLAGS=-xarch=v9
CC=/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc
CXXFLAGS=-m64

Depending on your compiler you may need the following instead
CFLAGS=-m64


Before continuing, ensure you have SUNWflexlex installed and /usr/sfw/bin in your path.

Next step is to run configure

Thanks for using super-smack!


Now edit the src/Makefile and add
-lsocket -lnsl

to
LIBS = -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -lcrypt -lz  -lsocket -lnsl


Now run make. It will fail.

When it does fail, edit the following line (around 107) of super-smack-yacc.cc and search for
YYCONST
and remove it.

Before:
void yyerror(YYCONST char *);


End:
void yyerror(char *);


Then run make again and then make install.

Super Smack should build compile fine now. However when you will try to run it, you will get "wrong ELFClass errors"

$ super-smack
ld.so.1: super-smack: fatal: /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.5: wrong ELF
class: ELFCLASS32
Killed


This is because of a 32 bit libstdc++.so being used

[root@db:/home/fmashraqi/install/bench/super-smack-1.3] file /usr/local/bin/super-smack
/usr/local/bin/super-smack: ELF 64-bit MSB executable SPARCV9 Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped
[root@db:/home/fmashraqi/install/bench/super-smack-1.3] file /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so
/usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so: ELF 32-bit MSB dynamic lib SPARC Version 1, dynamically linked, not stripped


To correct the error, we need to use an alternative 64-bit libstdc++.so
crle -64 -u -l /usr/local/lib/sparcv9


on your system this may be (but the above worked for me)
crle -64 -u -l /usr/sfw/lib/sparcv9


You can also try modifying LIBS environment variable to avoid the above crle stuff.

LIBS=-R/usr/sfw/lib/sparcv9 -R/usr/local/mysql/lib -lnsl -lsocket


At this point Super Smack should be working.

Stay tuned as in future we will be putting all these tools to some good use.

One consult, you make the same in redhat?, because wen I this "./configure --with-mysql" show me this -bash: ./configure: Permission denied

I'm the root user
